Harbin Polarland, Harbin

3.7
#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Heilongjiang
Experience life at the poles at Harbin Polarland, a theme park and animal observation center. See and learn about animals that live at both poles, including polar bears, penguins, arctic wolves, and arctic foxes. Themed areas above and below water allow you to see some of the regions' famous wildlife against chilly looking backdrops, and learn about their behavior in their natural habitat. The bustling underwater environments have a particularly believable look to them, with atmospherically lit glass observation tanks fitted with props to resemble a deep-sea dive.

  • Located in the Northwest of the island a little far from the center of the Harbin, the Sun. Aquarium is a Wolf, polar bear. Stop by in the morning, has been watching the dolphins, seals and sea lions show. I don't understand words came through is interesting. You can end up looking all show facility 1 2 3 hours once.

  • I have not experienced such a delight. It seems to me, I would have stayed to live there. Recommend to calculate the time to go to a show of belugas. It is held every two hours. I was in 12:00. The show itself lasts 20 minutes, but emotions enough for life. In addition, an incredible pleasure to observe polar bears, penguins, spotting freshwater seals and other inhabitants of the polar seas

  • When riding in Harbin polar akvarium thought would be boring, but was pleasantly surprised. Really enjoyed the show with seals. But a stroll through the area was nice to look at marine animals and not at sea (there were bears (white), polar wolves, etc.)

  • A good place to visit to know more about the animals, like Polar bear, white whale, etc., you will rarely to see in your life. Great place for tourists, will be great if the tourist can feel the cold inside the building.

  • Concentration camp for animals! That not all can be expected too much in terms of animal welfare in China, should be so well known. Because the Zoo but has recruited to be worldwide, focusing on polar animals, the only one I wanted to give still a chance of the thing and was horrified. In a windowless bunker without any sunlight even beluga whales, polar bears, seals and wolves eke their sad existence in too small cages here (2 polar bears at about 25 m square, the large belugas in a tiny pool of perhaps 20 m length, where they could swim only loops) on a concrete floor without any structures or hiding places, glaringly illuminated by artificial light. To an annoying time sound through a terrible kitsch music at a volume that the eardrums to fly out one. And, although Harbin would be ideal with its environment (only about 90 frost-free days a year) for a Polar Zoo with generous welfare outdoor enclosures. In addition, you can visit this unique Dungeon for animals for the legendary exorbitant price of about 20 euros apiece. Please is not the same there as I, saves you this sad sight, and promotes this facility not even with your entrance fees.
